Countryside East contracts with WCA for all household trash, yard waste, and recycling services. This service is paid by homeowners on their Countryside East annual dues statements.
Trash, recycling, and yard waste are collected on Tuesdays. WCA's holidays are New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. On weeks when those holidays fall on a Tuesday, Countryside East's pickup will be Wednesday. Residents are given a 65-gallon trash cart by default. In addition to the 65 gallon cart, residents may dispose up to the equivalent of 33 gallons in bagged trash or trash cans out per week at no additional charge. Additional bags require a sticker ($1.25) purchased at the Fairway Hen House or by phoning WCA. No volume limits are applied the first collection after Christmas or Independence Day. 35 gallon or 96 gallon trash carts are also available by contacting WCA.
WCA has provided each resident with a recycling container. Options include 35 gallon and 65 gallon carts. All acceptable recycling materials may be commingled.
Our contract also provides the pickup of one small bulky item the first Tuesday of each month. Unfortunately, they are not able to collect any type of electronic waste.
